Fake Jordan Peterson meat-only diet book at the top of Amazon’s ‘Toxicology’ section

A book alleged to have been written by Jordan Peterson, the controversial, conservative self-help guru, and his daughter Mikhaila, is at the top of Amazon’s ” Toxicology ” segment. According to the book, the pair’s” lion diet “- which consists of beef, salt, and water-cured their health issues, depression, and has even led to weight loss.

” Cult leader Jordan Peterson and his grifter daughter’s book about how feeing only beef and salt will cure you of cancer is currently number one in the toxicology section of Amazon ,” free speech activist Nathan Boonard point out here that, tweeting a screenshot of the book’s Amazon page.

Upon seeing Boonard’s post, Mikhaila Peterson took to Instagram to debunk that the book, called Our Carnivore Diet, was written by them.

” Not my book. Not @jordan. b.peterson’s either. Duh ,” Peterson wrote on her Instagram.” Great pics though. I’ll stimulate headlines properly when I publish my real book. #toxicology .”

Nevertheless, it is widely known that the Petersons do in fact live by an all-beef diet. In February, Peterson tweeted a bikini pic to her daddy to publicly prove that she appeared healthy, despite her carnivorous diet.

The book is likely poking fun at the duo for their diet.

” I can see the constipation on their faces ,” Konstantine Anthony tweeted.

Twitter user @ MattYoungmark noted that it’s actually not that hard to earn a top spot on the not-so coveted section.

” Also worth noting that Amazon’s’ toxicology’ segment does not have a lot of books in it and the sales rank on this one indicates that it sold roughly 9 ebooks today to earn that spot ,” MattYoungmark wrote.

The book has since fallen to number 5 in “Toxicology,” but it still has managed to secure a number 2 place in the” Pharmacology Toxicology” section.

Amazon did not respond to the Daily Dot’s inquiry about why the Petersons are listed as the authors of the book.

Digital therapeutics are just what the doctor ordered for patients — and for global healthcare systems

It would be hard to argue that digital products have a net-positive impact on our health. Most are designed to provide the same dopamine hitting as a slot machine. We all know someone who wasted their youth playing games that were designed to be all-consuming, with the World Health Organization recently going so far as to categorize video game addiction as a mental health disorder.

But this habit-forming power of digital products can be used for therapeutic benefit too, often by changing the behavior that causes disease or ill health. This new range of products is being usually referred to as digital therapeutics . These apps and services offer evidence-based and personalized behavioral therapy, and cater to a broad cross-section of illnesses and conditions — from diabetes to loneliness, and everything in-between.

Given the difficulty developing traditional therapeutics, the likelihood of the next blockbuster therapy or remedy emerging from digital therapeutics is ever-increasing. And thanks to their low cost, adaptability and speed-of-deployment, they could have a transformative impact on millions of lives, and on ailing healthcare systems.

I live and work in the U.K ., so I will be using the NHS as a recur reference point in this article — however, fee-for-service, or value-based healthcare systems equally stand to benefit.

Digital therapeutics work for patients…

A range of startups are resulting the charge in digital therapeutics, tackling some of the biggest problems facing patients and our healthcare system today. And the evidence proves that these treatments work.

Type 2 diabetes, the type decided largely by diet and lifestyle, has been called the” scourge of the 21 st century” by the Royal College of Physician. And rightly so: the NHS spends around PS12 billion annually, or 10 percent of its budget, treating the condition. However, in many cases, lifestyle change alone is enough to prevent, or even cure it. OurPathhas developed a digital program that does precisely that, with a recent study reveal a mean 7.5 kg weight loss in participants, which is enough to set form 2 diabetes sufferers into remission.

Another leader is QuitGenius, whose app helps 36 percentage of its users to quit smoking totally — versus only 3 percent of smokers who are able to quit on their own. Smoking is a massive burden on our collective health, and global healthcare systems. In the U.K. alone, smoking cigarettes led to an estimated 16 percentage of all deaths.

While one in four of us suffer from a mental health condition, we can all benefit from looking after our mental well-being.

For those suffering from a mental health condition, Iesohas been a leader in delivering psychological therapies digitally, and has shown that standard treatments( like cognitive behavioral therapy) are more effective when delivered digitally( e.g. via messaging app) than in person.

However, while one in four members of us suffer from a mental health condition, we can all benefit from looking after our mental well-being. Newer entrants like HelloSelfare helping all of us be our best egoes, initially by providing digital access to therapists, and by house an AI life coach that helps us deep are aware that constructs us happy, and what we can do to improve our mental well-being.

Other players, like Soma Analytics, Unmindand SilverCloud, are helping users look after our mental well-being where most feel most emphasized: at work. The data behind these products demonstrates a triple win: a reduction in stress levels for employees, boosted productivity for employers and reduced burden on our public healthcare system.

Digital therapeutics are also a great fit for notoriously complex conditions like IBS, a condition affecting 800 million people, 60 percentage of whom go on to develop depression or anxiety, hitherto only treated imperfectly by a range of measures from restricted diet to antidepressants. Companies like Bold Healthare using data to personalize treatments and improve outcomes, and pioneering the use of hypnotherapy to treat IBS.

… and our healthcare systems need digital therapeutics to work!

Bringing traditional therapeutics to marketplace is becoming exponentially more expensive. The full explanation of this is Eroom’s statute; however, in short: the cost to develop a new medication has doubled every nine years since 1950. And even after a lengthy testing and approval process, narcotics may have unintended outcomes. Or, quite simply, they might not work at all.

It now takes on average 14 years and $2.5 billion to develop a market-ready narcotic.

Additionally, healthcare systems are under pressure from aging populations and tightening purse strings. This is, of course, particularly true in the U.K.

Against this backdrop, digital therapeutics are a great solution. They are relatively cheap to develop — all the companies I have mentioned raised less than$ 5 million to develop their products. This is particularly true in contrast to traditional therapeutics — it now takes on average 14 years and $2.5 billion to develop a market-ready drug.

The digital delivery method means it is much easier to collect data, iterate and refine the therapy and proof efficacy, permitting therapies to change with the needs of the population. Quantifying the resulting cost savings is tricky, but healthcare consultancy IQVIA recently released a report estimate the NHS would save PS170 million if it adopted currently available digital therapeutics in five illnes areas( with PS131 million saved in diabetes alone ).

Digital therapeutics companies have so far discovered success in selling direct to consumers, even in the U.K ., where healthcare is theoretically free at the point of service for all. However, helped by the evidence that they work, the NHS is “learning” how to purchase and prescribe digital therapeutics. The NHS recently launched App Library( still in beta ), showcasing trusted digital apps to customers; and AppScript, a platform for physicians to discover, prescribe and track the best digital health apps, is being rolled out across GP surgeries in the U.K.

And if they were to develop their own digital therapeutic solutions, national health systems like the NHS would be at a tremendous advantage, thanks to the huge amounts of longitudinal health data they own( data relating to how patients, and their health, fare over time ).

Consumers are discovering digital therapeutics, and the treatments are already transforming lives. Now that the body of proof shows they work, it is my hope that healthcare systems, especially the U.K.’s NHS, begin to reap the benefits offered by this new treatment mode.

Jameela Jamil responds to accusations that she’s lied about chronic illnesses and accidents

British actress Jameela Jamil is perhaps best known for her onscreen role of socialite Tahani Al-Jamil in The Good Place . Offscreen, she’s built up a reputation for being an outspoken activist for body positivity and mental health–often calling out celebrities such as the Kardashians for shilling shady weight loss products.

Naturally, this oftentimes combative advocacy builds Jamil a lightning rod for disagreement and frequent target of trolls. However, Jamil recently found herself the target of Vice journalist and podcaster Tracie Egan Morrissey for a different reason altogether.

In the wake of Jamil coming out as faggot–amid criticism over her role as a cisgender, straight-out magistrate on the HBO Max reality competition series Legendary — Egan Morrissey” fell out the rabbit pit ,” so to speak, uncovering an alleged history of hypochondria, Munchausen’s, and fabricated injuries.

In an especially prolific Instagram story, Egan Morrissey did some pretty intense digging( for a supposedly forthcoming longer, in-depth piece of reporting ), alleging that Jamil has lied or exaggerated about everything from onset injuries( including an instance in which she claims that she lost a tooth, breach her snout and elbow during a recorded segment) being chased by swarms of bees( on multiple occasions !), hit by autoes( in some cases, because she was being chased by bees ), and so on and so forth.

Egan Morrissey even went so far as to insinuate that Jamil has a family history of such behavior, looking into her estranged mom and brother–the latter of whom penned a 2008 memoir about dealing with” everything from mental illness to romantic frustration, from mysticism to homelessness .”

Late Tuesday, Jamil finally responded to the allegations in a series of heated tweets.

” First I’m lying about my sexuality , now I’m now being accused of munchausens ?” Jamil fired off.” By an unhinged moron who didn’t even realize in all her’ research’ that my car collision injury stories are’ different’ because they were about TWO SEPARATE CAR ACCIDENTS 13 years apart? You can keep it .”
